The Necklace

So, I know we were all googly-eyed over Big Kid's insistence on buying his girl friend nice jewelry for no good reason.

"I am raising a man unlike any other man," I thought proudly,"One in a million."

Yesterday I picked him up from the bus stop and told him I would take him to the store.

"I'm finkin' I need to make somefin' now. I decided I want to give her a silver necklace wif a red heart. What if da jewry store doesn't have dat?"

I told him we'd look.

He walked in and marched around, glancing at the different tables. Finally he stopped. "Dat," he said, pointing.

There was a silver necklace with a pink heart that said Best Friend and had an outline of a girl and a horse. It was $6. It was also ugly, and I mean that in the sweetest way possible.

I showed him a lovely set of fake pearls. Pointed out an adorable, colorful bracelet with heart shaped beads. He was dead set on the horse heart necklace. "Does she even like horses?" I asked.

"Probably. Girls usually like horses," he answered. He might be right, maybe she'll love it.

But, I also might be raising the guy that buys ugly jewelry.

This morning when I put it in his pocket, I asked if he was nervous about giving it to her.

"No, mostly just happy. She's da most amazin' girl I ever met, and I met a lot of girls."

Now I'm dying to pick him up from the bus stop and hear how it all went down. I also really want to meet her and see this amazingness she possesses.

And she better not think the necklace is ugly.

And she better be nice to him or I'm coming to FL and kicking her little swinging ponytail ass. I don't care how cute she is.

I remember when my brother was in middle school he gave this girl he liked a stuffed animal and she scoffed at his gift. One of the most pissed off moments of my whole life. I wanted to kill her. But I was of legal age then and kicking her ass would have sent me to jail. Oh to be a few years younger.

Sorry about that earlier comment. I tend to get a little overprotective.

Too cute. My husband and I have had the ugly jewelry talk and if we have boys I expect him to pass that info along.
I can't wait to hear how it went!

What time does school get out? I have been WAITING for this day forEVER!

And to Jennifer... I hate to admit that I was a girl that scoffed :( I'm not proud either. I'm 28 and was 8 at the time and it still makes me feel bad.
